Provide more options of using color backgrounds on notifications or Give option to use the OLD outlook color scheme and layout
Provide more options of using color backgrounds on notifications in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for To-Do Pane notifications of upcoming meetings/events.
Or give option to use the OLD outlook color scheme and layout.
Also, border Style – allow users to change the border style as part of the “backgrounds” and “themes” settings. The window border style in Office 365 is less distinct than office 2010 (I was just upgraded from Office 2010). I find it difficult to differentiate between overlapping windows – especially when an email message window is completely enclosed by the Outlook window. I have been using Outlook for 20 years and this is the first time I have been unhappy with the window border style.
This new layout / view is horrible. Use this for work/business. Give an option to return to the classic layout/view.
this application is the ugliest I've seen in years. Switched from office 360 web-based to office 360 PC based and am going back to the web-based product. This looks like **** and I don't want to have to look at it all day. Come on, you can do better than this, my 12 year old could design a better layout
Enable a classic color schmee for outlook 360 that resembles outlook 2013 including menu color silver, icon colors etc. Easier on eyes!
change it back to the old view there is no color

Hi, I'd like to have more colors to choose in conditional formatting for new incoming emails.

I have always used some version of Microsoft Office in my business or personal life I am extremely happy with Microsoft range of products
In earlier versions of Microsoft Office (e.g.) Microsoft 2007. You were able to place a colour background of your own choice which was extremely good if you thought the white background was too harsh on your eyes, especially if you worked on a computer 5 days a week by the end of the day your eyes would be so sore The later versions do not have this function any longer This function could also be useful in notes, calendar, Another issue I have found when using your contacts. Your custom Colors disappear once you place them in your custom bar range once you close and reopen the app again the colours you have saved are gone completely except for the basic black I think that also needs investigating, it is frustrating to recreate the colours each time you add a new contact to your list.
I await your reply,

Hate the look and feel of 2016 outlook, give option to use old versions color scheme and layout.
more colors and prettier background options!!! the 3 color schemes? white, black or grey? Really? it's 2018! Come on, outlook! Get with the program!
I love the dark gray setting, but when I am viewing messages, the bright white as opposed to the gray hurts my eyes which is why I want to use the dark gray in the first place.
Hello, I have multiple rules set up in Outlook 2016 which automatically separate incoming emails into a few folders rather than going to my inbox. I am currently using the dark gray office theme and the numbers that appear next to the folders indicating there are new unread emails in that folder are the same color as the folder name and are easy to miss. I think it would great if we had the option to change the color, size, font, etc of that number in order to make it stand out more.

When replying to external incoming emails I prefer to change to my default 'Background,' but currently with Outlook 2016 the number of clicks has been extended to 7 to achieve this manually!
Please may we have a shorter pathway, when manually changing our preferred email background (I.E. Network) for example. Alternatively allow all outgoing emails to use the users default settings.
If out look closed, if we get any email that notification show on desktop, while we are working some other.
